The Indian Arts and Crafts Board: Stockbridge-Munsee Arts and Crafts Enterprise

October 23, 2015.
Anya Montiel (Tohono O'odham/Mexican), of the National Museum of the American Indian Blog, has written a informative post about the creation of the Stockbridge-Munsee Arts and Crafts Enterprise, its objects, and the history of the "Many Trails" design.

"In the 1960s, the Stockbridge–Munsee Community of Wisconsin worked with instructors at the University of Wisconsin Art Education Extension to develop an arts and crafts enterprise featuring art made by tribal members. The Indian Arts and Crafts Board purchased 17 pieces from the enterprise for its Headquarters Collection."
